How long does it take?
Homeowners will be happy to hear that metal roofs do not take long to install at all – often taking 1-2 days to complete if good conditions allow.
This means that our clients can enjoy all the benefits of a metal roof as quickly as possible.
Who needs to be involved?
When it comes to the installation of zinc roofs it’s always best t have roofing professionals and specialist zinc contractors construct your roof.
We often work alongside architects and designers, even in the initial planning stage to ensure your plans can go ahead smoothly.
Different from zinc roof installations, zinc cladding offers its own application to makeover the external envelope of your home.
An ideal standing seam roof material, titanium zinc can be applied to various different types of roofs.
Zinc sheets can be formed into shingles, cassette panels and flat-lock panels which can clad any building style and create a new building envelope.
We can use flatlock and shingle zinc tiles to fix your property, which is fixed using hidden clips at the edge of the profiled tile.
However, we can also use industry fixings and follow manufacturers’ recommendations.
A roofing material you don’t have to worry about
Moving into the modern age, zinc is looking to be one of the most sought after roofing materials because of its durable and strong properties.
Initially more expensive than other traditional roofing materials like asphalt or tile, zinc can provide a better value for money because it is likely to need little or any repairs through its lifetime.
This is because zinc is also self-healing and repairing.
This is due to the patina, which if becomes damaged due to the weather or scratches can repair itself over time, making it look fresher for longer.
